Pull up a porch chair, lean it back on two legs and enjoy the music of Kansas
City blues legend Little Hatch on Goin Back
. They love the little man in
Kansas City - where the traditional blues harmonica player's birthday has been
proclaimed Little Hatch Day
in honor of his broad fan support - and
you'll love the sound that has been lighting up the KC nightclub sky and other
venues for years.
APO owner Chad Kassem first heard the harmonica player
in the early 1980s at the Grand Emporium in Kansas City - when Kassem was still
flipping burgers and not even thinking about the music business - and was amazed
at how few recordings Little Hatch had made (one at the time, The Little
Little Hatch (who was once nicknamed Little
but changed it becuase his music deserved a name of its own),
made this unplanned and unrehearsed recording for Kassem's APO label at Blue
Heaven Studios when Hatch found himself as a spectator during another recording
session. He couldn't help himself and cut loose while the tape rolled along with
the masterful guitar accompaniment of longtime associate Bill Dye.
In about three hours, Little Hatch completed 15 cuts, most on the first take.
The result was traditional, raw, dirty blues at its finest with hamonica and
slide guitar. The acoustics of the grand old church make it sound like Little
Hatch is, indeed, playing just for you on your back porch or in your living
So go on back to the porch. Pull up that chair and take a listen.
